to see you. thanks for joining us. how do you make money if we go over the fiscal cliff? >> i think first and foremost, investors should recognize that a deal is likely to happen. whether it happens before the end of the year or after the ends of the year, something is likely to happen. i think you are going to see a relief rally on the end of that. fist and foremost, it's to remain calm and not to sell out of all risk assets and equities. you may be in for a bit of a bumpy ride. as such, there's an opportunity to be defensive. look for some of those lower beta strategies. look for the defense sectors. >> in the meantime, it is pretty clear the markets are anticipating we're not going to go over this cliff, isn't it? >> yeah, they sure are. i'm surprised to see the level of optimism that congress is going to come to some resolution here. i think it's scary there's no plan "b." i kind of have three ideas of my own. the first one is let's get real, folks. if everybody on wall street thinks something is going to happen, there's a good possibility the opposite is going to happen. to me, i think it's a good time to maybe take a little money off the

, in fact, just 27 days away from that fiscal cliff. did anything happen today to bring us closer to a deal? let's get the facts. eamon javers on capitol hill now with the story. >> reporter: hi, the story up here on capitol hill, speaker of the house john boehner facing a bit of a brush fire on the right here. senator jim de mint calling the proposal an $800 billion tax hike earlier today. saying that's going to allow washington to continue to spend money here on capitol hill. that's been met with a little bit of interest here in the halls of congress because that's a sign that republican conservatives are not entirely thrilled with the speaker's proposal to the president of the united states. it brings up the question of how much the speaker can actually negotiate with the president and how much his hands are going to be tied by dealing with his own conservative caucus here on the hill. talking with those republican members today, it seems like the speaker still has the upper hand. that's going to narrow some of the running room that the speaker has going forward. very, very dicey situation for
